Who is Vinny?

Vinny is a 3rd generation Italian, born and raised in the Bay Area California. He grew up with strong family values that has helped him really learn to connect with people. As a 15 year plus expert in customer service, Vinny broke into the marketing industry. Vinny has continued the legacy from his Dad and Grandfather in business and has carried his expertise into communicating branding effectively so businesses can scale.

4 Tips Building a Strong Personal Brand

1) Strong brand needs consistency
Your branding should carry the same weight and consistency across all your platforms and content. This includes everything from your profile pic, colors, bio, graphics, and copy. This creates trust, credibility, and authority in your business” Vinny said. This creates trust, credibility, and authority in your business which are 3 most important factors to have as a personal brand.

2) Know your audience
You need to learn to read your audience and provide the best content and information for your audience to engage with! Vinnys advice for this is: “Know what your audience is: if your selling to parents dont use edgy stuff. Stick with warm, friendly, and elegant branding. Also know the questions your audience is asking.

3) Balance your brand with your personal life
Why would you need to have your personal life in your branding strategy? Lets here it from the professional:”Perfect branding also includes you because you are your brand. Embedding your story in your brand is key to capturing not just customers, but creating an influence. The point is people don’t want to follow a robot, but a real person with real life stories.” Vinny said.

4) Be Different
Being authentic is insanely important in every business, but why: “Your brand should create a culture around your niche that separates you from the rest. Anybody can post about about beauty product ideas,but how does your brand make you stand out from the rest? Your brand should carry an aesthetic that isn’t like the rest.“, this is Vinny’s thought on importance of authenticity!

Social Media as a business platform in 2021?

Published

on

In 2020 one thing that has been proven is that having a regular 9-5 is not good enough to have a happy and sustainable lifestyle. So what is the right path to take in 2021 to secure your future?

Starting a Business

The only true way to “secure” your future is to be the person that’s building it. You can’t expect to be in control of your own future if you are not in control of your life, and the only way to do so is to be your own boss!

Starting your own business, becoming an Entrepreneur, more and more seems like the ONLY right way to generate income! Yes, it is hard, and yeah you will fail many times, but you are the one in control! If you want to earn more, that is up to you, if you need a 2 month break that is up to you!

Types of Businesses

Through my career as an entrepreneur I have seen 3 main business models!

1) Health/Fitness
Maybe you are an expert in certain topics on health or fitness, or maybe you are just a health/fitness enthusiast, but believe it or not no matter which one of the two you are, you can build a sustainable and successful business! I have seen online fitness trainers making anywhere between 6 to 8 figures, these people can either run their own programs on their time, while making. 6-8 figures OR they can work for a gym and make 30k/year. That is up to them and it is up to you.

2) Products/Services
Do you have a passion for making jewelry or T-Shirts, or do you absolutely love running ads on Facebook and YouTube? Why not turn that into a career? Instead of working at your regular 9-5 job, you can spend your days designing your product and posting it online so that other people who enjoy it can purchase it for themselves, or maybe you can use your passion for something to provide services to someone who needs a person just like you! If you ask me this sounds much better than mopping the floor or lifting boxes and making sandwiches for a big corporation!

3) Coaching/Mentoring
What if you are an expert in a certain field, or you know something that not many others do? Do you know that there are people out there who would pay for you to teach them? You can share your knowledge with the world and get paid for knowing something that you love. There are tons of people making great money making courses, holding online classes or mentoring others to do what they love, and you can do the same!

Social Media?

Now you may be thinking to yourself: “I know how to cook, but how do I find people who are interested in learning from me?” or “Oh man, I have been making butterfly rings for ages, how do I actually find people who would pay for them?”

So I know that you have by now heard of these social media platforms like Instagram and Facebook, but how is that of any use to you if you are just wanting to start your business?

Did you know that there are approximately 500 million users on Instagram alone EVERY SINGLE DAY.
So why should you be on social media as a business owner? Because you have a huge audience to expose your business to. It’s not the people’s responsibility to see you, it is your responsibility to make sure that you present yourself to them, and there is no easier way to do it then going on to the most populated platforms in the world like Instagram, Facebook, YouTube and TikTok!
